Welcome to JustAnswer Health...and thank you for your question. I am a verified Expert and am delighted to help you today. This kind of dizziness due to flying or on a cruise is caused by an inner ear problem, such as labrynthitis.

Treatment consists of

Antihistamines ( Benadryl for example) ,Corticosteroids (such as Rx prednisone) anti nausea meds such as compazine ( Rx only), and anti dizziness meds such as meclazine ( Rx only). Labrynthitis is usually a temporary condition that resolves on it's own with the help of some of the medications I listed above.

Yes, as sure as I can be with the information you gave me and my understanding the inner ear and her symptoms.Try not to worry, this explanation flts her symptoms well. Fortunately this is not a serious condition and can be well controlled with preventative meds, and for those episodes that do break through, the medications I mentioned for treatment are also very effective.
